Information provided by the CEC is primarily for clinicians and health workers in healthcare settings. Members of the general public should consult the NSW Health website for the latest updates on COVID-19 as their primary source of information.

This includes providing infection prevention and control and patient safety advice and expertise to the Ministry of Health; and developing state-wide strategies and resources (including training modules to rapidly up-skill health workers) to maintain high levels of compliance with infection prevention and control and patient safety recommendations
